Another new Husky? QB Williams commits

Washington has landed a quarterback for its recruiting Class of 2013 as Troy Williams of Narbonne High in Harbor City, Calif., said today he will sign with the Huskies.

The 6-2, 190-pounder is rated a four-star recruit and the No. 14 QB in the country by Scout.com and is also a four-star recruit and No. 4 at his position by Rivals.com.

Williams made the announcement during a ceremony at his school today, as reported by several different outlets, including Greg Biggins of Scout.com. (Here, also, is ESPN.com’s take on Williams’ commitment).

Biggins reported that Williams initially put on an Arizona sweatshirt and hat —- the school that was his other finalist — before stopping and saying “I’m tripping. I’m going to UW.”

Williams is the seventh commit for the Class of 2013. He will sign next February and assuming all of the current QBs remain on the roster, that would give the Huskies five scholarship quarterbacks for the 2013 season.

The others would be Keith Price, who would then be a senior; Derrick Brown, who would then be a sophomore, and Cyler Miles and Jeff LIndquist.

Williams was one of three QBs known to have an offer from UW. Two others already committed elsewhere — Skyline’s Max Browne to USC and Cooper Bateman of Salt Lake City to Alabama.

Williams took an unofficial visit to UW last Thursday, after which he said he almost committed on the spot before deciding he wanted to take a little time and make sure.

He told Scout.com “I just had a great feel for the school” after his visit and felt comfortable with the players and coaches. He also told Scout.com that he plans to graduate early and be at UW in time for spring ball in 2013.

Here are a couple of good features on Williams with some background — first from the LA Times, from ESPN.com and from The Daily Breeze.

And here’s a little video:
